went well for republicans in this election, that was pretty much it. it is a short list. want to talk about what went well on the other side last night? i'm actually going to pause for a second to give you a chance to hit pause on your dvr in case you want to go make popcorn or something? maybe mix a drink. you'll want to settle in for this. so get comfortable. i'll give you a second. ♪ celebrate good times ♪ come on you back? we ready? so last night, the democratic senator, who was supposed to be the most endangered incumbent in the country not only won, she won by 16 points. republican senator scott brown of massachusetts, who was so stuffed with hedge fund misunderstood that he burped credit default swaps. scott brown lost by a lot to the nation's foremost authority on the economic rights of the middle class. after marriage rights for same-sex couples were voted down in state after state after state for years, more than 30 times in a row, this year, all change in maine, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in maryland, they voted on marriage equality and they
saw effective black and latino alliances during the 2012 election? >> and the places where there were blacks and latinos living in proximity, all the states where there are both black and latino populations, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservatives in the republican party had pushed african-americans and hispanics together. they have a politics where sort of a nasty braggadocio, if you watch the primaries, where you have to be slashed and burn in how you attack your enemies, that very much does not go over with hispanics. some of the things that were said -- i have spoken to a well known latino pollster about this. he said a white person has friends and extended family -- that number is 8. a hispanic person has that number at about 50. if you are a slash and burn person, that is your style, you are not going to go over well with latinos. african americans and latinos have been pushed together. if you look at it in class terms, african-americans, the largest propo
the big news of the week. on tuesday night barack obama was once again elected president of the united states. but this year's party in chicago had nothing on 2008. back then more than a quarter million people crowded into grant park. mother nature even seemed sure of the outcome offering up an unbelievably warm 60 degree chicago night and the place was crowded with more black vips than the ethnic music festival. this year was more modest. a single podium draped with a touch of bunting, a far more typical cold, gray november day greeted the just about 10,000 supporters who found their way into chicago's unremarkable mckorm make place convention center. there was hugging, dancing, but the tears were more from relieve than inspired awe. be careful because if you decode this election night on the optics alone, you will believe them to be more different than they really are. despite a two-year halt in legislative accomplishments brought on by a recalcitrant republican party, an anemic economy, and a bruising campaign that lacked the historical fervor of the first, president obama nonethele

forward. tonight, in this election you, the american people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back, and we know, in our hearts, that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. whether you held an obama sign or a romney sign, you made your voice heard and you made a difference. >>> the tally. president obama 50%. 58 millian votes. mitt romney, 48%. 56 million votes. so much for the popular vote. the electoral vote. 270 needed to win. president obama 303, governor romney 206. still unassigned, 29, florida is conducting a recount. >>> was this election a mandate, a landslide, a rout, a speaker, a marginal win, what was it? >> it is a significant victory by the president of the united states by more than 2 million votes, john. i don't believe it is a mandate. >> why isn't a mandate if it is such a big win? >> a mandate for what? a mandate to work together, certainly the entire country wants that. but the real fire bell in the night on this election is for the republican party. the
's that sure sounds nice. the election's all done. now the question, can democrats and republicans find a way to work together to move the country forward and solve some very serious problems? it is back to business for president obama after a hard fought election and the president says he is willing to compromise. >> in the weeks ahead i also look forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward. >> the most pressing issue on the table might be the so- called fiscal cliff. if congress doesn't do something, americans face a rollback of tabb cuts as well as big slashes to defense and social programs and although it has no impact on the outcome of the election, cbs news has not called the election in florida. two counties it seems are still counting their votes for president. overseas prime minister benjamin netanyahu says he'll continue to work with president obama to continue to protect israelis and china's leaders say they're optimistic that a second obama term will give boat countries time to improve their -- both countries t

obama defied the polls and predictions in an election that was expected to be one of the closest in history, even with florida tonight still up in the air. the president won more than 300 a tour of votes to secure another four years in the oval office. many republicans are left in shock at the results asking how with 23 million people unemployed almost 8 percent unemployment, record national debt in excess of $16 trillion, scandals and controversies from operation fast and furious, the benghazi cover-up, how could president obama possibly win reelection so impressively? a popular vote margin of more than 2 million votes, but an electoral vote margin of almost 100. an examination of the fox news exit polling data shows the obama campaign won big with key constituencies, and a strong showing by the democratic base responsible for putting the president over the top. president obama drawing on the latino community. xbox projecting 71% of hispanics voted for the president. that number up from 67% in 2008 and, of course, the historic level. the president's support among black voters ac
that already we know some of the usual suspects even days after the election, the get out the vote effort on the democratic side was, appears to have been a master piece that will probably have impact on national elections going into the future. republicans have a lot to learn there. and there have been demographic changes in america. at the end of the day, i think my surprise about the election was that it was not so close in a way everybody was thinking we'd be up until four in the morning or counting ohio votes for two weeks. that didn't happen. this was a solid win for the president and i think the republican party has much to think about here going into the future. >> paul: thinking is always good. and maybe a step back and give at least some time to think. you wrote in the column, the republicans don't need to change their fundamental principles, belief in small government and so on, but maybe the way they present the principles. >> the way, the way they -- the way the party goes forward sometimes, it is the way -- is the way that unnecessarily, i think, occasionally turns people of
ballot voting delay to push right on the floor of the election. we don't know where the 29 electoral votes will go but have made every outcome of the presidential election. back to the topic here. what was your message to washington? a lot of newspaper articles this morning about the fiscal the cliff and that is what faces -- >> we will leave this portion of this morning's washington journal now to go live to the american enterprise institute for panel discussions on the election with fox news channel commentator michael barone, inside out columnist norman borkenstein and others. it is just beginning. this is live coverage from c-span2. >> to start the aei series in 1982. he is with us here today been lautenberg and the late richard scamen were the people to look at the intersection of democracy and public often opinion data in the 1970 book "the real majority." they told us how important changing demographics would be to future e elections come indigenous election de pass braking insights have been confirmed. latinos or a larger share of the electorate than four years ago, and they
. >> and a few moments, president obama'seens your campaign staff talks about election results. and have delmar, more about the election from political analysts charlie cook and stu rothenberg. then senator chuck schumer on the agenda for the upcoming lame duck session of congress. >> he does rolled himself out. he has taken 10 tablets. >> that is ridiculous. >> at some point he could stop breathing. >> where is sgt robert gates today? >> we ended up following him after this plane ride for many and he ended up injuring himself into an innovative program at walter reed, where they ended up using acupuncture, medication, and other techniques to wean him of all the drugs he was on, and for this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own 2 feet. i really commend the military for allowing us to tell the story, both the good and the bad, but for recognizing the problem, that there is the problem of over medication, and that they are looking for outside the box ideas on how to fix it. that is sort of the whole basis of the film, the status quo is not working and we need to star
in this coming week that people need to know about? >> the republicans will have their leadership elections. we are expecting that john boehner will remain the speaker and erick kcantor will be the number two. there is not any major legislation on the floor of the house that we are expecting. >> the president is speaking again on wednesday on this and other issues. >> and using his post as the election pulpit to start the process. >> absolutely. >> a thank you for being here. an interesting couple weeks ahead for us to watch.

[laughter] victoria book goes final comments. >> reaction to last night's election results from harry reid and house speaker john boehner. and analysis from the national journal. last night and democrats held on to their senate majority. harry reid talked about the election results. we will hear from republican john bellair. -- john boehner. >> i am glad to be back. it was a late night, early morning. to it is clearly we're going increase our majority. but the results show a number of things. a number of things for certain. one is that we're the party of diversity. look at the results from all over the country. i'm looking forward to working with so many great accomplished centers. i have talked to virtually everyone of them. when i came to the senate, barbara mikulski was it as far as women. now one-third of our caucus is women. the remarkable work done by all these great centers to be. but the election is over and we have enormous challenges ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all
in the state of florida, would have happened if the election had been september 6th, october 6th or november 6th. this was structural. this was demographic. this had nothing to do with any issue. no auto bailout. no sandy. no any other effects. and so any other excuse that some republicans make is whistling past their grave yards. >> you accept it's more about demographics, more latino voters, up 10%, almost 11%, almost maxing out. a pretty good showing among white voters, about 39, about the levels of the last four or five cycles. >> well, i mean, he dropped a little bit. he had 43% of the -- >> before him. >> yeah, around where gore and kerry were. you know, they were -- the people you mentioned before, david plouffe, jim messina and jim axelrod -- particularly messina and plouffe, i wrote about this, they saw this as a contest between economics and demographics. the economics were going to be a headwind for president obama and the only way to win was focus like a laser beam on four groups. the rest of the campaign was just mood music for them. they were looking at african-americans, hispani
of the first family arrived last night from chicago where they celebrated the president's re-election. he comes back to work with a big issue before him. congressional leaders from both parties say that now that the election is over they can work with the president on a deal to avoid the so called fiscal cliff. that would mean spending cuts and tax hikes that could plunge the nation into another recession. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans. but as americans. we want you to lead. not as a liberal or conservative. but as president of the united states of america. >> the american people want us to work together. republicans want us to work together. >> congress much reach a deal to avoid that fiscal cliff by the end of the year. >> will be a new era for sure if that happens. we'll see what happens. >>> coming up, election is over and inauguration planning well under way in the district. ahead, how city leaders plan to deal with the crush of people who will descend on washington. >>> the northeast snowstorm makes for some tough conditions
. vote! elections, from city council to president of the united states, we elect men and women to represent us at every level and in every branch of government. the people we choose make critical policy decisions, craft our laws, and judge us in many of our courts. considering that elected officials determine so much about the lives we lead, on what basis do we -- or should we -- choose and support a candidate? i'm renee poussaint. our elected representatives are just that, elected. in order to win, a candidate must campaign to convince the voters that he or she is the best choice for the job. and campaigning requires many critical decisions. should limited resources go to court this group or that? should candidates just focus on their own political ideas or mount a negative attack on the opponent? and how should thorny issues be handled? one thing is certain -- key to winning at every level is the crucial word "strategy." one issue nearly derailed the campaign of john f. kennedy, the 35th president of the united states -- he was a catholic. in 1960, there was a certain amount
had been nominated that she would not be elected? there would not be a race. she did not want -- she had had it with trying to adapt to this new reality that involved the tea party people. so the question is, is that, which is going to dominate -- fear or opportunity? >> about 15 minutes or so left in this discussion. you can see this in its entirety at the c-span video library. now the latest on the hurricane seen the hurricane response with craig fugate, and charley and nancy. you can also hear this on c- span3. >> update on the response to hurricane sandy. >> afternoon, everybody. i will be brief because i figure you got more questions. some of the highlights from the last couple of days. as of this morning, around 6:00 a.m., and we will have numbers later this afternoon be looked at you, but 317,000 folks have registered in the three states for individual assistance. and a total of -- is three had a 20 million for the three states. the yesterday northeaster had impacts appeared in many cases precautionary measures were taken to shut down operations. there was concern about that,
>> this week on the journal editorial report, a complete post election wrap-up. a look how president obama won a second term and what he's likely to do with it. and plus, how should republicans respond and regroup for 2014 and beyond. from tax hikes to collective bargaining to gay marriage, how some big measures, across the states across the country. welcome to the journal, editorial report. i'm paul gigot, a divided country gave president obama a second chance on tuesday, handing him a narrower, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it.
court press" on this thursday, thursday, november 8, two days after the big election. good to see you here on current tv. we're coming to you live from our nation's capital. bringing you the news of the day and taking your calls. pardon me. at 1-866-55-press. and president obama winning a decisive victory indeed on tuesday. re-elected for four more years but now a lot of republicans are saying he didn't get a mandate. what do you mean he didn't get a mandate? he won the electoral vote. he won the popular vote. he won! mitt romney lost! end of story! president obama does have a mandate to push his agenda. we'll tell you why and we'll tell you what it is but first here's the latest, today's current news update, standing by in los angeles, lisa ferguson. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. it's more than 24 hours now since the polls closed and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, i
, rachel. >> we have went through a presidential election in which we pretty much did not talk about afghanistan. there's new interest in our military commanders there because of the details surrounding general petraeus and these e-mails from general allen. is this inevitable, and can this be a way to turn country's attention back to the war? >> well, it would seem if you turned this long-running war, which i think is really off the public radar screen. it wasn't only not discussed in the campaign, in the debates, it didn't register in the polls like we're not at war, except for the people actually fighting it. to turn it into the "real housewives of tampa" may be the way to sell it or get people interested. i suspect the moment this is resolved in way or another, people will go back to ignoring the war. >> is there any way -- i guess the parallel question other than public interest is political interest. you have seen in congress right now, including some of the republicans returning to congress in the house they still control, a real softening of attitudes on the issue of how long
in chicago a day after his historic re-election. good morning. it's friday, november 9th. and with us on set, national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. also msnbc contributor mike barnicle and pulitzer prize-winning historian, jon meacham. he's the author of "the art of power." it's no longer forthcoming, it is here. and in washington, nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports," andrea mitchell. good morning, andrea. >> hi there. >> john heilemann, it's been such a long, long road since you guys started reporting on president barack obama -- then-senator barack obama's first election campaign in 2007. here we are five years later, a very emotional moment for the president who has endured five years of the highest highs and the lowest lows in politics. this has to be one of the most special moments for the man. >> undoubtedly. you know, it will be -- you think about the significance of him winning the first time, obviously, an historic moment. but in a lot of ways, you know, if he had lost on tuesday night,
with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well, that's a great question and i think a lot of those questions will be thrown at the white house, and they have already, i can assure you. the fbi, obviously, if there was an investigation going on would have known about this, the white house would have known about this. but there's not always necessarily a reason to make a change. if there is an investigation and anything serious that they feel like they need the opportunity to follow up on, there's a chance that moves wouldn't have been made. but the timing of it, obviously, with the election coming up is very curious. >> and there are some who say that the benghazi hearings are next week, following up on the attack at the consulate in libya. >> reporter: that's right. >> there are concerns that maybe this is a conspiracy, that this was timed perfectly to get the cia director out before that. any reporting on that? >> reporter: well, there are a lot of conspiracies i
they have to compromise. this hardball they have been playing, they will keep losing elections now. people want stuff, but nobody wants to pay for anything. that has to end it. people that read and know stuff realize we are heading for disaster. we just fought two idiotic wars in the middle east without paying for them. never in history have we gone to war and had a tax cut at the same time. that was ridiculous. all of our entitlement programs are unsustainable. somebody has to sober up and make the american public realize they cannot have everything and not pay for it. host: thank you for the call. we will go to the republican line next. caller: of course the grover norquist pledge is relevant. taxes on people to get money to idiots to spend stupidly like obama has is a waste of money. you did not see obama, joe biden, the clintons are any of them sending in more money than the bush tax cut rate. they are liars. they lie just like every democrat, just like the ones we hear every morning dew. just because a democrat could not say no like their mothers does not mean republicans cannot say n
associate media, one of the questions is prompted by treat from election evening. when we realize we had part of the historic results of this last week where he had 20 women in the u.s. senate, and historic number and rebecca rightly reminded us that it was in part because of things like emily's list that i want to have a conversation about the kind of institutions and the organizations that have been working quiet they all this time to make this moment possible. i don't have to say something about emily's list. >> families list within washington politics, it is an incredibly powerful force. at some point they were the largest organization. i don't know if that's still true, in the day of the super pacs, they are not the largest anybody. so emily's list is an organization that supports democratic pro-choice women for all kinds of offices around the country. they are very powerful and have been working really hard for a long time to get more women effect did. other celebration about the creator of the woman, sometimes you want to say this is terrific progress in other times you say wow, 2
regains solid support among women voters just before the election. >> hello, i'm bonnie erbe. welcome to "to the contrary," a discussion of news and social trends from diverse perspectives. up first, the last-minute scuffle for voters: the ground game. early voting. cell phone polls and women voters dominated the final days of the presidential race. a late week "new york times" poll showed the gender gap re-emerge knowledge in president obama's favor. 52% of women and 44% of men support obama. while the g.o.p.'s mitt romney has 44% of women and 51% of men in his corner. women voters in battleground states are the coveted demographic according to two campaign experts. >> i think if you look at the president has done with the economy, it is very far reaching, just across the country women have access to capital to start small business, let's not forget his very, very first bill that he signed in to law was lily ledbetter fair pay act. it's a tremendous accomplishment. i think that shows his devotion and his commitment to women. >> first thing you have to ask is, what are women concerned
